As of the recently released GIT 1.3.0, sending patches via an IMAP
folder with GIT just got easier.
If everything is set up right, you should be able to run the following
git-format-patch --attach --stdout --keep origin | git-imap-send
This requires some configuration in ~/.git/config:
name = "Mike McCormack"
email = "mike at codeweavers.com"
Folder = "INBOX.Drafts"
Tunnel = "ssh -q usr at svr /usr/bin/imapd ./Maildir 2> /dev/null"
headers = "To: wine-patches <wine-patches at winehq.org>\n"
Using Mozilla, you can just click on the "Edit Draft:" in the message,
check/edit the message and then click send.
Alexandre has said that he doesn't mind if the subject line contains the
No more missing patches, missing ChangeLog entries, or patches generated
from the wrong directory.
I think James Hawkins has written a program similar to git-imap-send
that works with GMail...
